I shot this with my new G11 this past week. I saw alot of contrasts between old and new buildings which I thought would make good compositions. In this one I also liked the contrast of color using the blue building as a backround.
Other opinions are welcome....

I like the comp Dave. Nice use of the lines in the image as well as the juxtaposition of the old and new. I tried a Local Contrast Enhancement at 30/50/0 (USM on BG copy) and really liked the look of that.

Hey Dave, I love the textures and shapes. I think this would make a great B&W conversion.

Hey Dave,
Like te contrast of colors too!....orange and blue. Agree with Robert LCE suggestion....give it the last bit of pop! Nick's B&W suggestion would also work IMO....so lots of options to toy around with!
